Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in altered states of consciousness and for those who have a healthy interest in broadening their range of knowledge.
He is mostly fair in his assessment of the authors he discusses, though he does insist on declaring arguments as having been "demolished", which is pretty unattractive.
I would also advise the author that he might re-assess his devotion to "post-modernism" which, a bit like day-glo headbands, is getting a bit too meta-retro-ironic for comfort.
But all-in-all, a good read, and a good expose of some stirling mumbo-jumbo that's been long overdue a good purge.
